    Question What to charge for a failed delivery

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good Afternoon,
    I have a case where our anesthesia provider was called in to do an epidural for a labor and delivery. He inserted the epidural, but the patient did not deliver and was later released from the hospital. How would you code this?

    We use the diagnosis of failed trial of labor 660.63. Since the patient received an epidural then you can bill 01967.

    We bill with the same codes in our office.
